A Renfrewshire nursery has received a positive report from the Care Inspectorate.

An unannounced inspection of Abbey Nursery in Houston was carried out on November 16 and November 17 by two inspectors.

The service, which is based in a residential area, is registered to provide care to a maximum of 92 children, including 24 aged zero to under two years, 20 children aged two to under three years and 48 children aged three to five years.

Evaluated using a six-point scale where 1 is unsatisfactory and 6 is excellent, it received a 4 meaning good across the board.

The four categories assessed included ‘how good is our care, play and learning?’, ‘how good is our setting?’, ‘how good is our leadership?’ and ‘how good is our staff team?’.

Several key messages were outlined in the report.

Inspectors said that “staff displayed warm nurturing interactions with children”, and “had built up positive relationships with children”.

Environments were found to be developmentally appropriate spaces for children.

Improvement planning, meanwhile, was said to support improvements within the service.

Finally, it stated that staff worked well together and were supportive of each other.

It also stated that no complaints have been upheld since the last inspection.
